Remind me again…
Be your best self
We are all a work in progress. It is too easy to hate on myself for imperfections in the past. Every day is a new day. Strive to be a better you, forgive your past self and move forward.
Empathy is the most powerful tool.
Understand people’s motivations and what they aspire to in order to serve them better.
Not everything works, but that doesn’t mean that the next attempt starts at zero. All endeavors inform the next. Never ever be afraid to try.
There is always room for improvment. Just because it has always been done some way does not mean it is the best, just the most familiar.
Do the impossible
Doubt is natural, but not productive.
Iterate, iterate, iterate.
Nothing is perfect, but constant iteration get’s us constantly closer.
Use your product.
To truly understand your users you need to feel their triumphs and their pains.
Take time to acknowledge accomplishments.
Everyone has their own strengths and their own challenges. It is too easy to criticize. It is much harder to genuinely recognize a person’s individual growth and success.
